Tiny Florals Patchwork Quilt

5 comments by Christine Lux

Last weekend I made a sweet little patchwork quilt for a Baby Shower and it was everything I hoped it would be! In fact, I love it so much that I am already planning to make another in a larger size! 

This quilt looks a little bit scrappier than it is. I started with 16 small scale floral prints and cut three 2.5" x 21" strips from each of the 16 prints. I then separated them into four stacks of four prints. 

I made three sets of the same four-strip set, but just alternated the order of the prints in the different sets to add some variety. I cut four 2.5" x 8.5" strips from each of the sewn sets and then sewed them all back together to make twelve 8.5" blocks. 

A little polka dot sashing was in order with my favorite, works-with-everything, low volume dot. I used 2.5" wide strips between blocks and then a 3" border around the outer edges. 

I did some free motion quilting and used a long hoarded floral for the backing that seemed to perfect.  I machined the binding on for a quick finish and was so happy it was well-received.

    I love the design of this quilt so much that I’m going to redo the width and length to fit a twin size bed for my two grandsons. I will get some boy material at Joanne’s and something boy for back. I’ll send pics when they are done. Wish me luck everyone.

    This quilt is beautiful! If you had a kit for the baby shower size, I would buy it immediately :)
